Author Flavia Andrade - 25.1.2024

Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, has announced a multi-format 30th-anniversary reissue of Alice In Chains‘ “Jar Of Flies”. The album turns 30 on January 25. Having been released in 1994, the EP was the first of its format to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in its first week of sales.

A standard black 12″ vinyl release will be available from all retailers. Plus, the band’s official online shop will carry a number of D2C variants of “Jar Of Flies”, including tri-colored vinyl, cassette, a clear variant with “flies” embedded in the vinyl, and a deluxe box set featuring the EP on tri-colored vinyl, a logo-embossed jar with touch-activated red LED and faux flies, a 60-page hardcover book, and a double-sided poster, all coming in a screen-printed, UV coated shadowbox. An exclusive merch capsule collection is also available now, with limited edition clothing, a poker set, a skate deck in collaboration with Welcome Skateboards, and a “Whale & Wasp” plush toy.

“Jar Of Flies” is the band’s first recording featuring bassist Mike Inez, and it portrays Alice In Chains in a lighter, acoustic style.
